No two students are the same, so learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all either! The talented tutors at Sylvan Learning in Merrillville can provide the personal learning experience your child needs to excel in the classroom and beyond.


At Sylvan, we go above and beyond personal tutoring. We offer everything from ACT and SAT test prep and college readiness to math skill programs and innovate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, so kids are kept engaged and motivated to accomplish their goals every step of the way. Our results are proven, which means we know exactly how to raise scores and confidence.

Our Merrillville programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families trust Sylvan because we deliver impressive results. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How is this achieved? We bring teaching and technology together to develop an engaging, personalized learning experience that’s big on fun.

At Sylvan, we want to ensure your child is learning in the way that’s best for him or her, which is why we take the time to understand your child’s needs, challenges and goals and tailor our learning plans accordingly. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your family and budget. We use engaging technology, interactive exercises and brain-boosting activities to make learning math fun and challenging, but never frustrating.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Yesss!) That’s how you can be sure what we teach at Sylvan is going to make a big impact in the classroom and beyond.
